For the second consecutive year, the Elmira College men's lacrosse team has partnered with the HEADstrong Foundation to raise money for cancer victims through the organization's annual Lacrosse Mustache Madness campaign.

HEADstrong was established by former Hofstra University men's lacrosse player Nicholas Colleluori, who was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma following his freshman season. His goal was to raise awareness and funds to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families by providing essential services. Although Colleluori passed in 2006, his vision has grown into a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has raised over $8 million and has assisted over 12,000 patients since 2007.

"The HEADstrong Foundation does an amazing job helping families that are fighting cancer," head coach Preston Chapman said. "We hope that we can help in some small way with our men's lacrosse team participating in the Mustache Madness campaign."
